Madagascar - Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis, April 2006
Overall, the CFSVA survey has identified food insecure households experiencing a problem of food availability, access and/or utilization. In addition, the analysis also identifies vulnerable households that are at risk of becoming food insecure. Their vulnerability is dependent upon their exposure to risk factors (such as natural disasters) and their ability to manage or cope with these shocks.
The highest percentage of food insecure households can be found in Cluster 9 (South), followed by Clusters 2 (Western inland area), 6 (South-East / North East littoral area) and 8 (South East). The proportion of vulnerable, but not food insecure households is highest in Clusters 1 (Western littoral area), 2 (Western inland area), and 8 (South-East), followed by Clusters 4, 6, and 7. Combining food insecure and vulnerable households, Cluster 9 (South) is in the most precarious situation, followed by Clusters 2 (Western inland area) and 8 (South-East).
